Re: Interesting article on bill to restrict BATFE
Does that mean if you change a flat tire on your car now your a auto maker?
That inspector was a fool. He was not manufacturing anything, he was assembling and there is a big difference.
Also the receiver already has a serial number noting that it is complete. If this were the way that it truly was, separating a barrel for crown work, shoulder work or repairing a headspacing issue would be considered manufacturing a firearm even though the gun already exists and has legaly been obtained. Also kiss swapping uppers on AR's goodbye, to this inspector your manufacturing a firearm.
Its common sense but obviously that's to much to ask.
